Amazing things happen in our schools every hour – from the headline-grabbing teaching “event” to the small, thoughtful exchange between a teacher and student that sets learning in motion. Last week I had the opportunity to spend a lot of time in our schools and grabbed a few moments along the way.
Math Maniacs at Byrd Elementary School – Teams celebrated recent student accomplishments related to automaticity with multiplication facts.
CBS 6’s Bill Fitzgerald visited Cindy Matejka’s English classes at Goochland Middle School – Students learned about the power of effective communication from an accomplished newscaster.
Goochland Elementary School’s Student Leadership Day – Students hosted parents and community members for a morning immersed in Sean Covey’s work around inspiring leadership and greatness in youth, the foundation of GES’ school culture.
